Beyond The Buzzer:
Following a a 103-80 loss at Chesapeake Energy Arena Wednesday night, John Wall was asked if he though OKC’s Russell Westbrook was the NBA’s fastest player. The third-year-point guard didn’t think twice before insisting he is the league’s fastest player.
According to John Rohde, The Oklahoman:
“No, I’m going to say myself..”
Wall wouldn’t even say for certain that Westbrook was the league’s second-fastest player.
“It’s tough man,” said Wall, who was coming off a career-high 47 points Monday against Memphis and finished with 18 points and 12 assists against the Thunder. “There’s a couple fast guys in this league. He (Westbrook) is up there,Derrick (Rose) is up there, when he’s healthy. Mike Conley’s pretty quick. There’s a couple guys. Ty Lawson’s quick. So there’s a lot of guys, but I put myself first.”

The Oklahoma City Thunder have been tied to the Wizards all season long. It started in the off-season when Washington turned down a trade that would have sent Bradley Beal and Chris Singleton to the Thunder for James Harden. Then, with the season in full swing sans John Wall, the Wiz fell to 5-28 and their 34th game of the season was against OKC. With Wall returning the next game...
